About Me

Welcome to my page! I can't wait to get to know you! Here's a little more about my team.

As an awarded artist since childhood, I continued my studies of photography and art in college and when my husband, Joel, got his degree in cinematography, it was my grand idea that we go into business together! What a trip and thrill it has been! To do what I love with the person I love most, and being a part of other incredible love stories...it's just awesome! I love being a Virginia and Utah wedding photographer. The amazing contrast of the red cliffs of Utah against the pristine blue sky to the beautiful and historic landscapes of Virginia, we love serving our diverse clients! We feel so grateful for all of the amazing couples, families, and vendors we get to work with throughout the year!

Some things you may find me doing outside of work is playing competitive board games with my family (only ones that I know I may potentially win), spending time with my kiddos, doing Crossfit (remember I'm competitive:)), watching football with my hubby, or planning our next adventure together, whether it's traveling overseas or to just a quiet cabin in the woods. Time is my biggest love language and Joel is the best at loving me that way!

A little about Joel... Besides being my most favorite person, he is a lighting expert and always searches and finds the perfect shot, whether as my second shooter, the videographer, or just on his leisure. He too is the creative type and has been in the arts all his life and learned to play music by ear in childhood. Some things that Joel enjoys are Crossfit (yep, him too), playing with the kids, cleaning (he's a little OCD) - I am so thankful! He claims, mostly correctly, that I am the messier one:) He also plays and composes music. 

We'd love the opportunity to get to know you, too! - LEAH

"Wow! From our first discussion and engagement session to the goodbye hug on the wedding day, White and Black Photography were the best throughout this year! They made us feel at ease and got so many shots during our October wedding! Initially with our engagement shoot, we were blown away by the images captured, so we knew we were in good hands for our big day! They are so creative, just follow their lead! I think the biggest plus to this team, is that they are a husband and wife DUO!"
